While Vice President Kamala Harris laughed at the notion of her visiting the southern border amidst the immigration crisis, former President Donald Trump may soon pay the US-Mexico border a visit.
“I could see him doing that soon,” senior Trump adviser Jason Miller told Michael Berry on his podcast on Thursday. “I could see a trip . . . it is something that [former] President Trump is really concerned about.”
At President Joe Biden’s first formal press conference Thursday, he misspoke on the reality of the illegal immigrants flooding the nation’s southern border.
Biden stated: “Truth of the matter is nothing has changed. As many people came — 28% increase in children to the border in my administration; 31% in the last year in 2019, before the pandemic — in the Trump administration. It happens every single solitary year.”
This, however, was not correct. The Associated Press published a fact check that the President “erred.”
The report continued: “Unaccompanied immigrant children have come to the border in higher numbers than what he said. According to statistics published by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, authorities encountered 9,457 children without a parent in February, a 61% increase from January, not 28%. “
While illegal immigration was a major focus for President Trump, President Biden has done little to help the American small towns being overwhelmed by the thousands of illegal immigrants crossing the border.
According to Miller, President Trump has yet to visit the border because he wanted to allow Biden to “fail on his own” rather than accusing Trump of “making a scene.”
While President Biden puts America last by downplaying the threat to national sovereignty and safety, President Trump indicated he will still put America first.
